Nylatron® MD PA6

Nylatron® MD polyamide 6 grade, containing a metal detectable additive, has been specifically tailored for use in the food processing and packaging industries where it can easily be traced by the conventional metal detection systems  installed to detect contamination of the foodstuffs (result may vary depending on the sensitivity of the metal detection system used). Nylatron MD presents good mechanical strength, stiffness, impact strength and wear resistance; it also features a food contact compliant composition, and is available as a “Food Grade”.

Advantages of Nylatron® MD:

  • High wear and fatigue resistance
  • Lower moisture absorption than standard PA6
  • Metal and visual detection by blue color
  • Detection by x-ray also possible
  • Continuous use temperature up to 85 °C (185 °F)


  • Food processing applications
  • Packaging applications
